Poor hit registration, can't use guns you've earned in player matches so no having fun with your friends or playing clan matches. So basically if all you plan on doing is playing ranked matches then buy this game.
You have to admit any shooter you play for now on will be overshadowed by COD4. Farcry2 is a whole differnt beast. With a diff feel to the first person shooter it takes a bit getting used to. The one player game is great the map editor is great but the multiplayer not so much. The first hour of me playing online consisted of me yelling at the tv screen there is a learning curve for this game. The weopon upgrading is no good and constantly downloading player created maps is a pain because including me most people suck at making maps. I would pass on this game and go straight for Gears of War2.

I bought this game, and I love it. It has such beautiful African scenery, and the weapon modeling is gorgeous. If you've played Rainbow Six Vegas 2, you'll enjoy the modeling for the weapons. This game's graphics engine beats out CoD4's, mainly because this game actually keeps up with the visuals and audio at the same time. The reflections, shadows, and sun positions are all real-time.
At times it's action can be a tad slow-paced, but it allows you to take your time and view the impressive surroundings. If you're a twitchy CoD4 player, this game isn't for you, you'll be bored because there just isn't as much senseless combat. You have to be deep, and methodical to overcome most things(depends on your difficulty setting). Swimming in the water, or just being out in the rain, slowly ruins your weapons, as does firing them. Malaria, it's wonderful, sure it can kill you, but so could the bullets all the Africans and Mercs are shooting at you. Though this game doesn't stick with the original Far Cry virus, or maybe it does, you'll have to find out :).
Take a risk, and try this game, I'm betting you'll love it!!! Oh, and uhm...try finding the Golden AK it's the most reliable you'll have :)
